ABS-CBN Cited For Good Governance, Wins ACGS Golden Arrow Award Anew

How do you feel about this story?


ABS-CBN was honored again for its good corporate governance alongside other top Philippine publicly-listed companies after it received an ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard (ACGS) Golden Arrow from the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) on Friday (January 20).

ABS-CBN was included for the third time as one of the outstanding domestic publicly-listed companies that are well-managed and compliant with government regulations based on the 2021 ACGS assessment results for 2020 operations. The company also received ACGS Golden Arrows for its 2018 and 2019 operations.

The ACGS is an assessment tool used in participating ASEAN nations like the Philippines to determine if an organization is being managed well and compliant with government regulations. Among the factors considered in the assessment are a company’s policies and practices on the rights of shareholders, responsibilities of the Board, and disclosure and transparency, among others.

A non-stock, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the professionalization of Philippine corporate directorship, the ICD aims to raise the level of corporate governance policy and practice to be at part with the best of the world.

ABS-CBN head of SSC Paul Michael Villanueva accepted the award of ABS-CBN at the ACGS Golden Arrow Awards held at the Sheraton Manila Hotel.
